Run for the trees! No matter how you reach the finish line - walk, run or roll - you pick the pace and the place, anywhere outdoors. Everyone who participates in this Bob Ross-inspired virtual race gets a Happy Little T-shirt, a commemorative bib number and finisher's medal. Proceeds support tree planting and forest protection efforts – such as invasive plant and forest pest management – in Wisconsin state parks, forests, trails and recreation areas.

Complete your race between April 22 and 28. Visit for more information and suggested 5k (3.1 miles) routes in state parks.

Registration closes March 1.
